New York State and City Pass Historic Requirements for Sexual Harassment Training and Policies: What Employers Need to Know to Comply
Authors: Shannon D. Azzaro,

New York State and New York City recently passed historic legislation requiring most private employers in New York to conduct annual sexual harassment training for all employees, effective October 9, 2018 (under State law) and April 1, 2019 (under City law). The legislation also includes expansion of existing protections against sexual harassment and additional requirements for different types of employers.
Employers should not delay in implementing programs and training to ensure compliance and give careful consideration to both laws, given their significant overlap.
